Wild Grace is an experience to reclaim these lost parts of yourself so that you can live in a fuller sense of wholeness, power and responsibility.
In the tantra worldview, the masculine (shiva) is consciousness and the feminine (shakti) is energy. Each of us, whether male or female, have both inside us and we are working towards a more balanced sense of being.
This means we need to fully honour the masculine in ourselves and in society, and at the same time tap into our feminine nature – and deep capacity we have to love, to listen, to birth, to create, to play, to channel wisdom, to bring sensitivity, to live through our intuition, to transform and be connected to nature.
To do this, we must also understand our shadow and the patterns we may have fallen into, from victimhood to insecurity to manipulation to passive aggression.
What To Expect
Each day will be themed on a different deity taken from the Hindu mythology – the word deity translates as shining playful ones. We will start the day with meditation, the mythological story of the deity, mudra, mantra and a deep yoga asana class which will take us deep into the myth.
After lunch we will have time to “workshop” the qualities of the theme of the day, and then after dinner we will take part in a ritual where we are able to fully celebrate and embody this.
We will move through any blocks holding us back from our power and awaken our divine feminine in the form of beauty, wisdom, courage, fierceness and compassion. This retreat will give you a grounded understanding and expand your connection to these Goddesses, as well as your relationship with your own feminine power and it’s balance with your inner masculine.
We use the Hindu deities as a map, but you don’t have to believe in Hinduism or in yourself as a goddess to take part. It’s a language that helps us to uncover different aspects of ourselves. These are deities that are often referred to in modern yoga.
Over the week we will be exploring multiple themes of this time including: our true nature and relationship with our shadow, sacred activism, our relationship with our body and our self.
